Usher treated patrons of a karaoke bar to an impromptu performance of Michael Jackson's classic, "I'll Be There." The performance at Rock & Reilly's on the Sunset Strip was caught on video early Tuesday morning and shows the R&B singer hitting the high falsetto notes that Jackson originally sang when he was just a young boy with the Jackson 5.
TMZ reports that Usher had been hanging out upstairs in a private area with friends throughout the night, but eventually came down around 1 AM to mingle with the crowd.
The video might prove problematic for Usher who is currently engaged in a heated custody battle with his ex-wife Tamara Raymond, who recently lost her young son (Usher's stepson) in a boating accident.
Usher recently asked the court to delay the ex-couple's next hearing due to the death, but Tamara fired back saying that Usher didn't care about the boy's death and was using it as an excuse to delay the proceedings. She has pointed to videos and tweets of Usher online since the death to demonstrate that it has not affected him emotionally. This video may be more evidence in that vein.
